A Joyful Heart is Magnetic to Love

“Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.”

There is nothing as radiant and attractive as a joyful heart. Joy is heart centred, and is the spiritual expression of happiness. It is centred in deep gratitude and awareness, even though it can be generated by the most simple of things.  It is all about smiling from the inside, breaking open with infectious enthusiasm and zest for life, love and gratitude and rainbow sparks shooting from your eyes, laughter and kindness and feeling abundant and benevolent towards the world…


This is a gorgeous activity, and one of my favourites.  I call it “Bliss Bombing”.  Take yourself to a public place, like a mall, coffee shop, or a bench in a park near where people are walking by.  Sit somewhere unobtrusive.  When someone walks past, shoot a radiant shower of sparks from your heart to theirs and silently bless them with love.  You can even send joy and love from your heart to trees, animals, plants, bus-loads of commuters and overhead planes.  You might  want to say to yourself, “I bless you with love.  Know joy today.”  If anyone catches your eye, just smile.

Feel your open heart begin to tingle with energy and joy.  In that place of energetic connection look around you at the world and you will see that it IS brighter and more beautiful.  YOU contributed to that shift. It’s okay to let your face crack open from smiling!  Expect an outpouring of feel-good emotion. ♥


Embark on a rampage of appreciation.  Take yourself somewhere that pleases you: propped in bed on comfy pillows, a local coffee house with a hot beverage at your elbow, a park, an art gallery – anywhere that soothes and feeds your soul.  Take a moment and breathe in that comfort, and allow yourself to feel connected to your heart. Feel grateful for each breath, for where you are right now, for the time of day, and the weather, for the goings-on around you. Let the worries of the day fade away.  Say to yourself, “I choose to recommit to myself.  I choose to see the joy in life.”

In this place of connection open your journal and begin with the words, “I am aware of small miracles and wonders around me everywhere.  In fact right now there is…  “



Sit quietly and close your eyes.  Feel your heart beating.  Feel the blood whizzing around your body in your veins.  Feel your breathe coming into your lungs, and out again.  Notice how this is automatic.  Your body is healing and breathing, heart pumping, ears listening, skin feeling, mind noticing.  You are a living breathing miracle.  Feel how amazing you are.   Let gratitude, wonder and peace flood your heart.

  1. Well, here I am, once again catching up with your posts. One day, I’ll read them as soon as they come out… in the actual moment… and won’t miss out on having a chance to win a beeeeeautiful piece of art/heart jewelry.

    Still, I always *win* something when I read your inspiring posts. And after reading this one, I can’t wait to go out and bliss-bomb the people around me. I’ve been having a bit of a challenge getting my health back following a very stressful 2011, so haven’t been walking about as much as I used to. But journalling and meditating and nurturing myself are things I need to do, right now, I guess. The Universe has tackled and pinned me down in order to get me to take a good long look at my life and I can honestly say, it’s been a blessing! Thanks again for being a part of what the Universe had in store for me in order to pave the way to a brighter Now. 🙂

    Peace & Love, Always xoxo

  2. Hello Ncole,

    Yours, Mxx

  7. Thank you for that article I truly loved it and I could feel that even reading the sparks in my heart were reigniting!!! It’s amazing how forgeting to be grateful and aware for just a few days can land us in the murky waters of worry and sorrow – which like you said never robs us tomorrow’s sorrows:) Im going to send out lots of sparks today, like a spark plug it’s bound to give my own heart a kick start today. And I’ve already thought of so many things to be grateful for!! Thank you and sparks of love to you!

  8. I want to send you one of those lovely little heart symbols that people do but I haven’t worked out how to do it. So please imagine it is in this space. Thank you for today’s beautiful message. xx
